For decades now, Peter J. Harris's voice has mesmerized his readers and listeners. He moves us with his words and his presence, his dignity and his vulnerability, with his truth-telling and the way he can spin a tale, turning narrative into song, lyric into incantation. And here he is, doing it again in SONGAGAIN — a most powerful and beautiful collection of poems.
Poetry. African & African American Studies.
